Dinner Time!

I found another wetlands nature park with boardwalks, this time in Tampa, Florida. I went for a walk for an hour or so this afternoon and managed to catch this Grey Heron with a Catfish.

Baby Alligator

I drove from Miami to Tampa today and just after leaving Miami I stopped for a couple of hours at Green Cay Wetlands Nature Center. Lots of birds around and about 4 of these baby alligators. Did not see any sign of Mom though.

Lights of Vancouver

I am in Vancouver for a couple of days. I had some time after arriving this afternoon to go for a walk in one of Canada’s prettiest urban parks, Stanley Park which offers great views of the city of Vancouver!

The Old Doors

This past weekend I was in Ardmore, Oklahoma for a couple of days on business. On Sunday afternoon, between the rain drops, I spent a couple of hours exploring the downtown area. I found this abandoned building with these cool doors.

Favourite Images of 2016

As 2016 approaches its end, I am taking a few minutes to reflect back on the year. From a personal perspective, it was a crazy busy year. 108 flights for business travel and 10 for personal. I was away from home more than 80% of the year. From a photography perspective, I did one amazing trip to the Yukon Territory in Canada’s north. I met up with some photography friends and I made some new ones as well. Other than that and a whirlwind tour to Austria, my photography took a back seat in 2016. I think I may have taken more images with my iPhone(s) than with any of my DSLR’s.
 
I have many reasons to be grateful and happy in life and one of them is my amazing and patient wife! She has always supported me in my endeavours and is always there for me.
 
There are 2 photographers I would like to say thank you too in 2016. These 2 guys have become not only friends, but guys that I am excited to see what amazing images they have have created every time they post! Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka are such amazing and talented photographers! I urge you to check out their work!
 
I am looking forward to an exciting 2017 as I have 2 major photography trips planned! One with the guys mentioned above and another with my lovely wife!
 
I have put together a short slideshow of my favourite images of 2016. Please feel free to share!
 
I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Be safe and enjoy life!
